identified the breeds of the girls ...
Buff Orpington and Black Australorp ..how cool is that?
Coop is nearly built - chicken wire is ready for making a run .. hopefully they'll get to move out tomorrow. Big T has used all scavenged materials - amazing we have been able to just build around what we have. Bunny hutches need to be banged together too - hopefully tomorrow morning will be as nice as this morning was ...
weeding is on the to do list (of course) as the garden is a jungle but we'll get there when we can
dogs are loving it - we are loving it too
it smells SO GOOD to just stand outside the front door.

In a weird confluence that is so often my life - just as I am getting ready to concentrate on Vareharri for the summer I got asked to take 2 chickens. Two already laying chickens ... what a weird, strange, wonderful world we live in sometimes. No names yet.... No clue of breeds ...but I snapped bad pictures as they emerged from the carrier ..
so they need housing, pen and goodness knows what else...

vareharri hay lying on the field waiting to be baled ...
how cool eh?
I love the smell of fresh mown hay too
peas, lettuce, watermelon, cukes are coming up
tomatos look better, ground cherries and peppers still not happy
carrots got thinned today - beets still need to be done
weeding, weeding, weeding, weeding ...

the shed is done - looks great :)
at least I think it looks great
went down to lake house with Mum - it was beautiful
weeded, weeded and weeded some more ...
corn is popping up - tiny but there ... tomatoes, peppers and ground cherries had a ROUGH week - onions, garlic and potatoes all look great though ...
flowers are starting to bloom in profusion so you can really appreciate them (and the weeds in the flower beds - which are NOT my priority!)
